Golf In Paradise - The Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship

Cathleen Hannigan
Championship golf in a tropical paradiseWell, that's the simplified discription, but the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship is much more than that. 

I've spent the past few days attending the event and enjoying the marvelous, multifaceted experience that is Puntacana Resort.  It's been both exciting and idyllic, which is a testament to the decades of thoughful planning that have turned a swath of jungle on a Caribbean Island into a world class resort... one with a deep respect for the natural environment and a dedication to sustainability. 

Hosting a professional golf tournament is a major undertaking... a finely tuned symphony of logistics on a massive scale... and this is clearly something Puntacana Resort & Club has mastered. 

As the players get ready to confront the Devil's Elbow - a visually stunning but brutal series of oceanside holes on Corales Golf Course - I'll be spending the last several hours of my time here checking out a few of the many extraordinary sights in the area. Because that's the thing about Punta Cana, there's championship golf, but there's also so much more. It's a true "something for everyone" destination.

I'll be writing about my adventure in much more detail and look forward to sharing the many sights sounds... and flavors of Punta Cana here over the coming days.
